We had visited this interesting store the day before but I returned to get some photos. This gentleman provided the perfect accompaniment to my photo as I snapped away.

This @littlefreelibrary is a miniature version of the historic home. I love Little Free Libraries and echoing the design of the house is wonderful.

Capture this during an event at this amazing, repurposed, location in Culver City which used to be the Helms Bakery back in the day. Now it is filled with a variety of design companies showing off their latest creations.

A couple finds respite in the cool shade of the garden on a hot Summer day. We did the same. After walking through the garden we found a bench and just enjoyed the scenery. The mosquitos got to be a bit fierce, though. Bring bug spray if you visit in summer. 😀

Architectural Abstract

Architectural Abstract via Instagram

Another photo of architecture taken to its abstract limits. This isn’t someplace special or unique in regards to architecture but was found in a local shopping mall. 

For myself, I was taken by the regular divisions of space in contrast to the larger panels and the curvature of the roof and how it effects the divisions.

I ended up taking lots of photos of storefronts during this trip. There are so many interesting and unique displays and often the stores themselves are just as unique.

In this scene we get an important lesson on how sight lines can make a garden seem much larger than it is. The leading lines of the pathway, the encroaching growth of the plants and the architecture at the end make it seem like the garden goes on for an even greater distance. 
This garden is hemmed in By buildings on each side and isn’t particularly large, but new vistas were always opening up as you walked about.
